Many people are waiting until 2010 to see if the land leases on many homes in SCOTTSDALE will double or stay put based on property values. Scottsdale has held more to it's value than most. I would say that the land leases in the 85251,50 and 54 area will be increasing. They will re adjust and you have to be prepared for that type of uncertainty. There are also concerns in LENDING as well. Most lenders need a 20-30 year land lease period in order to loan on the property.
